Yes it has been a hectic year for me managing a few companies at the same time trying to make all my clients happy. I have made several changes to the way I handle my wedding photography business. Competition in this industry is irrelevant to me now and I live in my own world serving my potential clients and existing clients who has been supportive of me throughout my whole 18 years career in wedding photography.
I have made several improvements and I could see the response and one of the things I love most is:-
4. working and selecting a few professional photographers to work with me for clients who have enough budget for their wedding day (sometimes I bring my student photographer along for on-site assignments).
5. last but not the least, I love going "solo" for my photography job (for budgeted clients). This year alone, I manage to return approximately 1500 images (in average) in high resolution images back to my clients. Why keep it? Best of all, my rejected rate for all images taken for an actual wedding day is only 3%. Sharp, clear and manage to capture the moment, be it at the wedding ceremony, the church or temple and wedding reception.
I sincerely hope next year will be another great year, not just for me but for all readers who visit my web blog once a while. Thanks and wishing all of you a wonderful New Year in 2012. Adios!
